1 An AEDT 2c site license includes a single seat license, which allows installation of the full AEDT application on one computer within a single Office. An Office is defined as a single organizational unit or entity, having a unique function, comprising one or more contiguous rooms in a single location. Installation on additional computers within the Office, portable computers while on official travel or home computers for use on behalf of the Office, would require the purchase of additional Seat Licenses at the price of $170 per Seat. For example: If your Office has 5 computers planned to run the full AEDT installation (3 workstations in the office, 1 laptop for official travel, and 1 home computer) you would purchase an AEDT site license at the price of $1200 and then purchase 4 additional Seat Licenses at $170 each. If you have any questions about purchasing AEDT, please contact us at aedt-support@dot.gov.

2 AEDT 2c licenses do not include technical support. Support hours will need to be purchased in advance in order to receive support. Once technical support hours are purchased and the order is processed, support can be obtained from the Submit Feedback page or by emailing aedt-support@dot.gov. A minimum purchase of two support hours is required. Processing time for technical support orders is typically 1-2 business days.

How to Obtain AEDT 2c

FAA employees: Contact the National Service Center (nsc@faa.gov) and request the Aviation Environmental Design Tool (AEDT) 2c. NSC will direct you to a software request form. Budget at least one hour for an IT technician to install AEDT 2c onto your computer.


1. The European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation's (EUROCONTROL) Base of Aircraft Data (BADA) is a critical database integrated into AEDT. All non-FAA and non-EUROCONTROL users of AEDT must read, agree, and register for a BADA License Agreement for AEDT users by visiting http://badaext.eurocontrol.fr and selecting “AEDT”. This license is free to obtain. EUROCONTROL can take up to two weeks to respond to an individual license request, so it is strongly recommended that you apply for an individual BADA license well in advance of purchasing AEDT 2c.

Each site that is licensed to use AEDT must have at least one AEDT BADA license issued to a user at that site. The AEDT BADA license should be obtained by a user who has the authority to agree to the BADA agreement on behalf of their company and will be treated as an official point of contact by EUROCONTROL.

*BADA “standard” licenses are not applicable to AEDT and cannot be used with AEDT.

Users who already possess a BADA license tied to another application, such as EDMS, must obtain a BADA license specifically for AEDT. AEDT 2a/AEDT 2b users with existing AEDT BADA licenses do not need to re-apply for an AEDT 2c BADA license.

2. Order AEDT 2c online through our secure Pay.gov AEDT order page.
